This comes after interim head coach Gary Henderson led the Bulldogs to a College World Series berth. 

Some fans are pleased with the new hire. Some say the university should have made Henderson the permanent head coach. 

"I think they should keep the one they got because of how the season went this year," said Colby Hall. 

WTVA's Evan Hensley spoke with many fans. Overall, fans are embracing the change. 

"I went out and looked at his record this morning," said Randall Armstrong. "And he's got 20 plus years of experience, been to the College World Series several times." 

The university announced Lemonis helped lead Louisville to three College World Series as an assistant. 

Hall believes the Bulldogs will be back in Omaha soon.
